New Mexico Takes a Huge Step Toward Digital Access

A new law will require New Mexico government agencies to provide public records electronically if the records exist in digital form.

The measure, which passed both the House and Senate unanimously, goes into effect July 1. Gov. Susana Martinez signed it into law Friday.

The bill’s sponsors said they and their constituents had problems in the past with some agencies or departments not wanting to send records in an email or download them to a CD.
